As a parent you can make all the difference to your child’s communication skills. Helping your child learn to communicate will help them develop good relationships, do well at school and be confident and happy. You can help your child more than anyone else as you know them best, care about them and want to give them the best start in life.
This new website Words for Life gives you an idea of what communication milestones your baby and child might reach as they grow. There are ideas for fun activities you can do together to help your children develop their skills.
We would really like your feedback on the website and any suggestions for additional content or ways in which we can make it better. Please give us your thoughts by using the form below.
If you are a literacy professional, teacher or librarian, you can download free posters to promote Words for Life here. If you are looking for information on literacy policy and research, try our parent site, the National Literacy Trust.
